Rave: Top 10 Viral Vids for 2011

Everyone loves a good viral video.  Whether it’s shocking, hilarious or ridiculous, we love a good laugh or witty joke. We have to admit, we’ve watched a lot, but there were a few stand-out favourites this year.  We’ll let these videos speak for themselves.

10. Kanye West, Jay-Z – Otis
One of our favourite music videos of the year, Kanye and Jay-Z chop up a Maybach, rebuild it and drive it around all while being super awesome.   


9. A Harvey Nichols Christmas 2011 – Ever faced a walk of shame? 
Though less viewed than our other selections, Harvey Nichols created a brilliant idea to promote their store during the holidays. Haven’t seen it yet? Only 500,000 have, check it out!


8. Old Spice – The Man Your Man Could Smell Like
Great example of an amazing marketing campaign. With almost 38 million views, it’s by far one of the best commercials we’ve seen in a while. 

7. Denver Official Guilty Dog!
Denver that scoundrel. 

6.Ryan Gosling talks about F*ck Yeah and Hey Girl
Self-explanatory.


5. YouTube Challenge – I Gave My Kids a Terrible Present
A follow-up to “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy,” Jimmy Kimmell once again reached out to parents and asked them to trick their children and film reactions. These poor children… but hilarious all the same.


4. Nicki Minaj – Super Bass by Sophia Grace Brownlee
It’s hard to find things more adorable than two little girls rocking out to Nicki Minaj.  These two were featured on Ellen and had the chance to go shopping with Minaj after their little music video went viral.

3. The Crazy Nastyass Honey Badger
Ever wonder what a honey badger gets up to? This video takes you on the daily adventures of our favourite marsupial, the honey badger.

2. Marcel the Shell with shoes on
An adorable shell with shoes. What’s not to love? 

1. Shit Girls Say
Our favourite of the year for sure. Let’s be honest, we’re guilty of most (if not all) of these phrases. We can’t stop smiling!
